Theater of the Oppressed group to bring training to campus

The Faculty Center invites you to a training by Theatre of the Oppressed NYC on Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. in the CME Great Room in Lee Hall.

Theatre of the Oppressed NYC partners with communities facing discrimination to inspire transformative action through theatre. They partner with community members at local organizations to form theatre troupes. These troupes devise and perform plays based on their challenges confronting economic inequality, racism, and other social, health and human rights injustices. After each performance, actors and audiences engage in theatrical brainstorming – called “Forum Theatre” – with the aim of catalyzing creative change on the individual, community, and political levels.

During this training, participants are introduced to the core techniques of Theatre of the Oppressed and learn to facilitate exercises with groups in an accessible and engaging style. Participants will learn and “teach-back” games and exercises, receiving constructive feedback on their facilitation from leader and peers.
